John wakes up alone in a metal box surrounded by grates, with glowing coals beneath him. He tries to sit up, resting a hand on the fire grate, burning his hand and sending up sparks. "Damn," he says, and looks around and out the top grill: "Hey! D'Argo? Anybody hear me? ...This must be detention, then." He hits the top grill with the heel of his hand a couple of times, calling out again.
Rygel explains to D'Argo that Macton is lying. They're sitting at the refectory table. How does he know this? "Because he's a Peacekeeper? Because he has to be. Look, he's trying to get to you. And it's working." How well? "Lo'Laan and I were happy together. He can't change that. I won't let him." Too late. You're shitting all over it. Rygel calls this Exhibit A that Macton's getting to him. "I should have killed him." Rygel reminds him that was supposed to be basically the post-S3 hiatus, right? While Pilot and Noranti and Moya and Chiana were all off getting raped, and John was nursing his own self-pity on a dying Leviathan, D'Argo was going to go kill Macton? So how come we're revisiting it now? Let's ask the screenwriters. "Part of me knew that wouldn't bring Lo'Laan back -- and another part couldn't resist letting him know that I knew exactly where he was." Ah. Well, that explains that. "Pay attention to the part that wants to kill him," says awesome Rygel. "He's given you a second chance to take your revenge." D'Argo waffles -- "I'm not sure I want to," so, you'd really just run around bitching and asking everybody else to cosign your drama, but God forbid you actually take care of business. Got it -- and Rygel's fed up: "For yotz sake! Kill him and be done with it!"
